London Vegetarian and Vegan School offer small class sizes that enable them to emphasise teaching. Their classes are hands-on cooking from beginner-level to advanced meat-free and professional vegan gastronomy.

They believe that: “Vegetarian cooking is not about recreating or emulating the equivalent of meat and two veg but, instead of reapplying everyday vegetables, grains, cereal we already are familiar with albeit in a different and sophisticated way.”

Go to an independent film screening

Tucked away around the corner of the busy Leicester Square, the Prince Charles Cinema shows a rotating programme of cult, arthouse, and classic films alongside recent Hollywood releases.

The Prince Charles Cinema is known throughout the film industry for being innovative and daring.

Quentin Tarantino, Director of PULP FICTION said: “The Prince Charles Cinema is everything an independent movie theatre should be. For lovers of quality films, this is Mecca.”

Membership costs £10 for a year or £60 for a Lifetime.
